It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve written a product review. I’ve spent a while writing a few lifestyle posts; spending quality time with my girls and focussing on my day job. I absolutely promise that I’ve been buying and experimenting, I haven’t given up being a product junkie and it’s fitting that my […]

Nyx Butter Lipstick and Intense Butter Gloss

I’ve clearly been hiding under the rock of high-end products for years and haven’t tried any NYX products until very recently. I liked what I tried so  put a request out onto Instagram and Facebook to ask my followers if they had any recommendations for amazing NYX products.  These are just two of what I […]

Collection Velvet Kiss Moisturising Lip Cream

I’m old enough to remember when Collection was called Collection 2000. In those days, I used to buy quite a few of their products using my Saturday job wages. Not much has changed… my actual wages mostly get spent on makeup after bills, kids and my car. I’ve been feeling nostalgic lately and harking for […]

Primark Velvet Matte Lipstick Crayon in Midnight

It’s no secret that I’m partial to a bold lip or that I’m a fan of Primark make up. And I really do like these Velvet Matte Lipstick Crayons, so much so that I wish they did more colours. The range is pretty limited. I felt like a change today so thought I would try […]

Mac Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick Review

I’m quite into liquid lipsticks at the moment. The first one I tried was the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink in Expérimenté which I absolutely love as it’s such a unique colour. (Check my review out here.) As I loved the consistency and the longevity, I’ve been on the hunt for liquid lipsticks from different brands […]

How to Prepare Your Lips for a Bright Lipstick

I used to be too scared to wear a bright lipstick, but as you can see from my January favourites, that is no longer the case. I will admit though, bright lipsticks do take a certain amount of confidence to take wear but also a degree of preparation, as they draw attention to your face. […]

Clinique Crayola Chubby Lip Crayon Box

I had a few hours of child-free time last weekend. I was so excited. It was the first time in weeks. I can’t even class work as child-free time; I work in a school. But, at least at work I don’t have to share my lunch or be watched when I go to the toilet… […]

Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Expérimenté

So, when I say I hunted for this, I mean hunted high and low even to the point of sending my poor dad into House of Frasers across the country (he’s a train conductor, I didn’t make him drive for miles) in order to find this shade. I really wanted Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Experimente […]
